Colts @ Dolphins Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation!     :)  Our 6-8  Indianapolis Colts  move on from their disappointing home loss last Sunday to the Houston Texans, as they are in South Florida,  to play the 5-9, and last place Miami Dolphins, in  regular season road game there for the first time in more than six seasons.  Colts and Dolphins are playing in their 73rd all-time meeting this afternoon, including two postseason games

 

Colts were on a four-game regular season winning streak over the Dolphins dating back in games in 2003, 2006. 2009, and 2012, before Miami won the last meeting played at Indianapolis more than two years ago..  Dolphins tight end Charles Clay broke a 20-17 Colts lead with 4:40 remaining in the fourth quarter. And along with Caleb Sturgis's PAT, helped the Miami win 24-20 at the real LOS, back on September 15, 2013.

 

Dolphins lead the all-time regular season series,  with 47 wins over 25 losses, and Miami has also outscored Indianapolis in the previous 72 games with 1627 points, over the Colts 1230 points.

 

A mix of mostly cloudy and clear skies at 82 degrees, feels like 87 degrees, is the game forecast inside Sun Life Stadium in Opa-Locka, Florida, for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 10% precipitation, 68% humidity, and east/southeastern winds at 17 miles per hour.

 

Colts are wearing their white helmets, blue jerseys, and white pants with blue trim, while the Dolphins are wearing their white helmets, jerseys, and pants, with aqua and orange trim.

    • Right. Reich talked about it in the offseason...that explosive plays were a missing ingredient. Whether he practiced what he preached is a different story (and of course there’s context that goes into that...like who their QB was). I am just saying that he has indicated that he wants to be more than a methodical clock control offense. And I think Reich will look to do that...when they have the QB in place.   DVOA definitely has the Colts defense rated ahead of the offense. The Colts  overall defense was #7 and the overall offense was #12. More specific to passing, the Colts passing offense was #16 and the Colts passing defense was #8.   The defensive ratings are likely skewed by the first half of the season...but the offense had the easiest schedule of any team...and still managed to be middle of the pack in passing offense (according to DVOA).    Yes there’s room for improvement on defense...but it’s tough to expect better than a top 7 unit. An edge rusher will help with the pressure rates...but they have showed they can make big plays and create takeaways. I would say the defense is pretty damn close to being a viable SB winning defense (especially when teams like KC, GB and BUF are currently playing to go to the SB).   So the priority should be the passing offense. It’s the necessity to this team getting to the next level...which is a SB. Otherwise, they would have to buck a trend that only historically elite defenses have been able to do.   And to improve the offense...they need a franchise QB and additional weapons. 
    • Well Frank said moving him to tackle would be discussed this off-season so the Colts are at least considering it.  Rather they do it or not remains to be seen.
    • Good blooper reel of Cole vs Louisiana with 10s left in 2Q where the BJ takes him out.  Good backpedaling and change of direction with enough speed to build up enough force to get knocked down.  May need some NFL strength conditioning to help shed blocks.
    • Do I need to point this out? We all know how valuable LT's are in the draft. If Quentin Freaking Nelson was LT quality, he would have not been paid a # ton of money to be a guard. He would have been scooped up ASAP as a TACKLE.     What....like every team missed this and suddenly he can be just as awesome as a tackle? 
    • Liking what I seen and read on LB Cole.  Looks like a good player capable of handling SAM and MLB rotations.
